In coaching pre-marital couples, I am not surprised their definition of love is “friendship, honesty, kindness, trust, loyalty, and respect.” Or that their top need is “intimacy, affection, security, and commitment.” Our status with our spouse can only reach these levels when we concentrate on providing what they need.
We get lost in our relationship when our status on social media takes up more time than being present, sitting shoulder-to-shoulder.
When did the admiration of others become more important than the admiration of our partner?
Stop trying to LinkedInto social media for threads of what you request your marriage to provide. If you want to go viral with lifelong love, post on your partners living profile their top need, and feed how they define #Love. The payoff of average response time in getting your needs met will be a trending win-win event!
